Glasgow-based specialist finance broker Your Expert Group has appointed Nathan Ellis-Calcott as director of specialist lending.
With over 15 years’ experience in financial services, most recently at Edinburgh-based master broker, Thistle Finance, Ellis-Calcott is tasking with driving the development of the Your Expert Group’s soon-to-launch specialist lending division through select intermediaries and introducers.
Your Expert Group is being created out of the Your Mortgage Expert brand, which has been providing high street mortgage and protection products since 2006.
The Your Expert Group specialist lending division will provide advice on complex mortgages, secured, bridging and commercial loans, and the limited company structures and Special Purpose Vehicles (SPVs) used by a growing number of landlords and property investors. The official launch of the Your Expert Group is targeted for September 2018.
Ellis-Calcott said: “The specialist finance market is evolving rapidly and the vision Peter and Derek have for the Your Expert Group, which brings something entirely different to the table, is one I immediately bought into. This is a well-backed venture with a robust and scalable infrastructure already in place and I leapt at the opportunity to be involved from the start.
“My role will be to introduce the full specialist lending product suite to select brokers and intermediaries around the UK.”
Peter Dean, co-founder of Your Expert Group, added: “To get Nathan onboard is a major coup for the Your Expert Group and will help us to realise the ambitious goals we have set out for the high growth sector that is specialist finance. His expertise, experience and contacts in the market, across both the broker and lender environments, are second to none.
“This appointment hopefully underlines the extent of our commitment to what we regard to be our most exciting venture yet.”
